I ordered my SQ5 with the optional 21" Audi-exclusive wheels which came wrapped with summer Pirelli P-Zero rubber. This is great for 3-4 months of the year, but I needed to find a setup that would get me through the rest of the year. My research pointed me towards Hartmann, a manufacturer of high-quality Audi replica wheels. I had a set of Chinese-made 22" Porsche replica wheels on my Q7 and they were fine, but I always questioned their quality. After talking to the guys at RPI Equipped in British Columbia, I made the decision to purchase 20" HRS6-204-GS wheels with the 25 offset. With the OEM centre caps, they are identical to the OEM wheels they are based on, but costing about 1/4 of the price. The "GS" denotes the gloss sliver finish. I wrapped them with 255/45ZR20 LM-60 high performance winter Blizzaks and they have never disappointed. I have had them on the vehicle for almost two complete winters and they have been awesome, plus they maintain the factory look, which I like.
